Song of the Day: Paint Me Ugly – IYKZ

Premiered at BBC Radio 1Xtra by DJ Target as his #UKUnsigned track  the highly relatable and meaningful track ‘Paint Me Ugly’ by IYKZ explores the losing battle people face when they don’t share the same perspectives in a relationship.

IYKZ is an upcoming, homegrown talent who has ventured from the grime world over to the rap scene in his older years. He started out in the Channel U days of grime as a 14-year-old emcee and as he has matured in sound, influence and person, he has found rap to be his outlet. He has previously collaborated with Maleek Berry and has over half a million Spotify streams on his previous single ‘They Know (wan mo)’.

The emotional, inspirational and thought-provoking stamp on his music is typical of the themes and rhymes that IYKZ explores. Most recently he has released commercially successful singles like ‘Clarity’ and ‘No Commercial’ gaining attention of J.U.S.T.I.C.E League and BBC 1Xtra whilst singles such as ‘Kilo’ professes greatness for IYKZ.

‘Paint Me Ugly’ is coming from his full-length album entitled ‘Closure’.
